Thanks for the info Derek. I'm really glad you share my enthusiasm for
using SQLite :) How likely is that to happen?

Do you have Matthew's email address, or could you send it to my email
address so I can contact him? I'd love to have this feature and help
maintain it with each release.

Many thanks,
